# Calculate derivatives on Casio Graphics Calculator?

Is there any way I can calculate derivatives using a Casio Graphing Calculator?

Is there a program available for the calculator which can calculate them?

@user8176: I'm pretty sure that your model of Casio won't give you a formula for the derivative. The best you could do is probably to get several numerical approximations of the derivative and note the pairs $(x,f'(x))$ from the calculator, then try those values of $x$ in the formula you think is the derivative to see if the values match. If the values don't match, your formula is probably wrong; if the values do match, it's not a guarantee your formula is right, but it is a quick check. –  Isaac Mar 13 '11 at 7:44
